A Dragon Arrives! Trailer

"Trust me, he was mad." The Match Factory has released an official international trailer for an Iranian film called A Dragon Arrives!, and I can pretty much guarantee you haven't seen anything like it before. The synopsis introduces it as thus: "An orange Chevrolet Impala drives across a cemetery towards an abandoned shipwreck in the middle of a desert landscape. It is the 22nd of January, 1965. The day before, the Iranian prime minister was shot dead in front of the parliament building." Beyond that, you'll have to try and make sense of all this footage on your own, because it really is something else. Starring Amir Jadidi, Ehsan Goodarzi, and Homayoun Ghanizadeh. I am a fan of Iranian cinema, and this looks extremely unique.

Here's the full international trailer for Mani Haghighi's A Dragon Arrives!, from YouTube (via TFS):

A Dragon Arrives! Poster

Three adventurous young men are put in danger by their unauthorized investigation into the legend of a seismological phenomenon in an ancient graveyard on a mysterious island… Based on a true story that could not seem any further from the truth, A Dragon Arrives! is a re-enactment of this fantastic journey, and a search for its ending. A Dragon Arrives! is both written and directed by veteran Iranian filmmaker Mani Haghighi, of the films Modest Reception, Canaan, Men At Work, and Abadan previously. This first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year. A Dragon Arrives! does not have a US release date or any info available yet on its arrival - check your local film festival line-up in the meantime. Curious about it?
